When attempting to start print services on an OES Linux 1 SP2 server I found the following message in /var/log/messages:

The iPrint Manager could not open a socket to the specified address, unknown, associated with DNS name PrintMgr.iPrint. Error FFFFFFFF returned. The address associated with the DNS name must be local.

I believe this was a result of our DNS server not running at the time.

For future reference, if I were to add an entry in the hosts file on the server, would this prevent this issue from occurring?

Thank you.
